a poll on the country in a lot of ways. so second, if we had a grand bargain on energy, how to exploit the bounty of natural gas in particular in the environmentally safe and sustainable way on the national basis i think those two things together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and i was saying about the middle east but it may apply to american politics is all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. so, i think -- hearing talking about the election. i don't know how the election is going to come up and make no predictions but i do ask myself if romney gets smashed i don't think the political problem is we have a center left problem and we have a far right party that is a structural problem. the republican party has gone nuts in my view. they've been at war -- there's been a simultaneous -- they've been simultaneously at war with physics at the same time. on the deficit and biological l2 mac, some of them for sure. so the question to me is what happens the morning after this election if romney loses. he wasn't far right enou
. number one, we will take advantage of our energy, coal, gas, oil, nuclear. the president has cut in half the number of permits and licenses on federal lands and in federal waters. i will double them. the president has made it virtually impossible to build a coal industry in this country. we have a lot of coal and i want to use it. the want thet w keystone pipeline. i will get us that oil from canada. i will open up more trade. we can trade on a fair basis with people around the world. but when people steal our jobs and trade practices as a china has, i will hold them accountable. we cannot let our jobs get stolen unfairly. i want to make sure the people have the skills that they need to succeed. i want training programs that prepare people for the jobs of today. right now have 47 different federal training programs reporting to eight different agencies. think of the overhead and the bureaucracy and waste. i want to take of that money and give virginia its fair share and say, you create the training programs that work for your people. that the federal government out of it.

an opportunity to ask questions of the candidate in myrtle beach. do you remember the energy in that room. i mean you knew when they went after each other the battle was on. it was game on time. you had cheers. you had jeers. all that. and people remember those moments. what do you think -- what do you think the president -- what do you think he learned out of that experience? >> you know, i thought about that for a while today, suzanne. i think the president clearly perfected his style. it was pretty clear to me that he started seeing even then that any flashes of anger on his part were more likely than not to go over poorly. so in that debate that you and in moderated together with wolf, we saw efforts by hillary clinton who was also running for president at the time to get under the president's skin, to get under mr. obama's skin again and again and again. it looked like to some degree there in south carolina both hillary clinton and bill clinton were sort of -- were sort of going after him at the same time, trying to fluster him when he got to this debate. he never went there. and i think tha
up under the obama administration. energy prices are through the roof due to the poor energy policies and weakness of this administration. biden was right. >> the president doesn't cause gas prices. if that was the case why didn't you applaud him when gas prices were going down. he has not raised taxes. he lowered taxes on working families and small businesses. too joe biden is talking about the record of the obama-biden administration saying they are buried. jamie: will the president have tee dress this tonight? will he have to talk about why the middle class was -- will he distance himself from his policies playing a role. >> he may have to put context into biden's statement. >> why is it that whenever this administration, whether it's the president or joe biden actually tells the truth. they tell you what's on their mind like the president saying that the private sector is doing fine or telling entrepreneurs like me that we didn't build our business. why is it when they tell the truth suddenly they are taken out of context. >> there you go again to quote one of our great republican
americans. and if romney can hit home the fact that we all want lower health care costs, lower energy costs, that we all need economic growth and job creation, i think then he has a real shot at the white house. jenna: is there still time? >> that's the question. [laughter] i think for any candidate, and this is my opinion, but i think you have to be specific. i think that you can't be wishy washy. jenna: is that what you're going to be looking for in the debate, for example, something that could sway women voters and close that gap a little bit? >> yeah. i think they tried a little bit during the rnc and were not as successful. i thought it was interesting how he talked about all of the very strong women he's been surrounded by and he's surrounded himself by in his life personally and in government and in the professional world, but i think he needs to be more specific. he doesn't need to be scared to come out and explain why something like the lily ledbetter act is a bad policy for women. i think he needs to say, look, the wage gap is a myth, let me tell you why, and let me tell you how v
problems, energy problems, environmental problems. our health-care system, our tax system. our regulatory policies. washington has taken another five-week vacation. it took a five-week vacation in august, worked two weeks, taking another five-week vacation. if these people did a better job, they would not have to take some much time off to campaign, raising money, because if they did a good job, people will reward you. when you do not do a good job, you have to spend a lot more time doing that. >> do you think we would be better off with a parliamentary system, where one party to control things for a time, and we did not have to deal with a republican house, a senate of democrats, so we are always at this gridlock? we kind of let the supreme court make the decision because the politicians cannot do it. >> we need to work at bath, but i have no idea how, because as you know, that is the way it is. it is human nature to maintain the status quo until the things get terrible. then people get flexible. that is the worst time to solve the problem. the best time to solve a problem is when your t
on the energy and commerce committee and i was on the health subcommittee day. there was a lot thrown at us really quickly. how does it all fit together? so i wasn't ready really to sign up. there's a few of us like. half a dozen at most. and i was at the white house a lot in very small groups with the president. he was very engaged, both in the issues and also in the persuasion and trying to bring folks together. and i think you see that, with its this immigration reform, implementation of the health care bill in this next congress. there will be some other areas, where it will be legacy and he will also see him learn from them is dates -- i think george bush the second was much a similar way and that he wanted to read a book, go to bed. he didn't want to fool around with congress. and it didn't work or while early on. towards the end he got very engaged. i'm once again, it was sort of interesting and he may see this with president obama. toward the end, president bush really felt somewhat ostracized from his party. he felt they were letting him down in the sense that the right wing he cou
said about half the energy companies supported by the obama administration going bankrupt. he didn't actually mean that. sort of rolled over from democratic and liberal bewilderment last night that mr. romney was abandoning his main economic plan that he was running on, his $5 trillion tax cut plan, his big trickle-down plan, to be rolled over from democrats being bewildered about that to the beltway press and mainstream pundits i think now having a hard time deciding whether they are supposed to call that a lie or whether they're supposed to just say this is a radically new position for the candidate and welcome to it. joining us now, jonathan alter, columnist for "bloomberg news" and msnbc political analyst. mr. alter, great to have you here. >> hi, rachel. >> how does president obama counter the strategy of mitt romney's to unveil whole new ideas or deny he ever held the ideas that he plainly has held? it's one thing to have a truth squad fact checking online. how do you counter that at the podium? >> one is i'm rubber, you're glue, bounces off and sticks to you. trickle-down, t
was wondering if you thought it was the way they came out and the energy that they had or if what they're saying has as big an effect as the perception of how they're doing and how excited they are to be there. >> well the first observation is clearly aarp is lowered because it's membership age. i think the body language is important and i think that the president hurt himself with that. i don't think that the romney side should think that he's going to be like that in the next debate. i think they'll look at that and think that's not what we wanted to project. but at the same time, you can go back to the tape and break it down like a football game, romney had a lot of good points that he got across and i thought from a policy standpoint, i thought it was pretty rich. when people are complaining that this got too much into policy and too deep in the woods, well usually the complaint is there's not enough substance, it's too style oriented. so i think from that standpoint, it was a pretty good debate for the american people to see a lot. the one difference i think was that clearly mitt romney cam
